Natalie Lefevre and Eline Andries of Alternative Peru have developed a list that promotes sustainable tourism in Peru.
The list includes different smartphone apps and websites that give travelers different ideas on how to travel green, while supporting the local economy and giving back to local people.
For example, Alternative Peru´s list suggests how to lower your footprint while traveling by using the app GreenSeat, which calculates your carbon emissions. Another website that the group promotes is Eat Your World, a website dedicated to helping tourists support small businesses and try typical dishes in their region of travel.
For those who really want to immerse themselves in the culture, the list suggests VolunteerMatch, a website that connects you with different NGOs for various volunteering opportunities.
